Lisa assumed she would never leave academia once she achieved her Ph.D. However, after she began working as an environmental consultant, she found her new path – and has never looked back. Since then, Lisa has devoted her career to risk assessment and toxicology. She manages risk assessments of hazardous waste sites in many U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regions and under many state regulation programs.
Lisa’s passion for consulting and deep industry experience helps her clients comply with environmental regulations in the best and most reasonable way possible. No stranger to public speaking, Lisa is also adept at agency negotiations and environmental communication. Lisa was appointed to the National Coal Council by the U.S. Secretary of Energy, and in 2016, she was recognized as one of the 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining.
